Turner and the Modern World

Thursday 10th December 2020

This autumn sees the opening of Tate Britain'snew exhibition dedicated to the influence of modern life and the industrial revolution on the work of one of Britain's most popular and influential artists, J.M.W. Turner, bringing together some of his most important works such as The Fighting Temeraire 1839 and Rail, Steam and Speed 1844.

We are delighted to welcome Janeen Haythornthwaite, one of Tate's most distinguished lecturers, for a special evening lecture for Friends of Art History in Focus.

The lecture will use Zoom Meetings (rather than Webinars) allowing you to participate and ask questions using webcams and microphones (if you would like to use these) throughout this informal discussion. 

This is a live-streamed talk at 5.00pm GMT.  Tune in from anywhere in the world to watch or enjoy a recorded version of the lecture which can be accessed afterwards. The event will last approximately one hour.

The talk is complimentary and for Friends of Art History in Focus only - we will send log in details to all Friends a few days in advance and hope that you are able to attend. Don't worry, there is no need to book your space online
